Guardian Unlimited Sport | Peschel breaks rib in Tour

German cyclist Uwe Peschel broke a rib on Saturday during the 19th stage of the Tour de France as he raced in the individual time-trial.

The Gerolsteiner team rider fell twice during the 49km from Pornic which was run in torrential rain.

I wouldn't be surprised to see the Tour come down to a crash in Nantes. I hope it doesn't.

At this point, Armstrong and Ullrich are very nearly stroke for stroke, with Ullrich just past the first checkpoint.
